To protect the environment, we offer sophisticated technical solutions that mean a Porsche can be driven with a greater proportion of alternative fuel. And yet remain a Porsche.
All of our cars will comply with the strict requirements of the EURO 5 emissions standards well before they come into effect. Already, all Porsche engines can be fuelled with a blend of 10 per cent ethanol and, in fact, the Cayenne – suitable for driving almost anywhere on the planet – can use up to 25 per cent biofuel (ethanol), depending on the country. Our racing engines also use biofuel. The high-performance power unit on the RS Spyder, for example, is designed for a 10 per cent ethanol blend and takes Porsche from victory to victory in the American Le Mans Series (ALMS).
What is more, we are working on a flexible fuel vehicle (FFV) at our development centre in Weissach that can run on a blend of 85 per cent ethanol, as well as petrol.
Fuel consumption* of the Cayenne models: Urban in l/100 km (mpg) 15.8 (17.9)-8.4 (33.2); Extra urban in l/100 km (mpg) 8.4 (33.6)-6.5 (43.5); Combined in l/100 km (mpg) 11.5 (24.6)-7.2 (39.2); CO2 emissions in g/km 270-189.
* The latest Porsche models are designed to operate on fuels with an ethanol content of up to 10%. Data determined for standard specification and in the NEDC (New European Driving Cycle) in accordance with the Euro 5 (715/2007/EC and 692/2008/EC) measurement method. The figures do not refer to an individual vehicle nor do they constitute part of the offer. They are intended solely as a means of comparing different types of vehicle. You can obtain further information about individual vehicles from your Porsche Centre.
Consumption figures were obtained on the basis of standard equipment. Special equipment may affect consumption and performance.
